What can I claim
Hi new here, my husband has been off work nearly a year, his work has been very good. Full pay for 6 month then down to half pay. This runs out in August. They have a company insurance that we have been trying to get for about six month which would of covered his salary to 75 per cent but they are taking so long to see if he is eligible for it. Last year he was very ill and was in hospital for 6 weeks with pneumonia, MRSA, sepsis then they found spinal abscess to. His recovery has been slow. He saw a neurologist and was put on baclofen for spasticity. About 2 month ago he went down hill again and was in hospital for 12 day, they found he had a serve infection in his hip replacement. Now he need a 2 part op to clear this up. My question is as his salary won’t be paid after August and we don’t get this insurance policy through his work, are there any benefits we can claim to help us. We are in the process of claiming PIP, which we claim back in March. Still waiting. Any advice please.
